Ballroom, Bull Hotel, 7-9pm

Flea! No, don’t flee. Come to the public launch, relaunch, of the community opera first mooted in 2015 but put on hold when an application for a grant from the Arts Council was unsuccessful.

The principle funds are now in place, thanks in particular to the Electric Palace, and the show is on, scheduled for May 2017.

Written and composed by Andrew Dickson and Sally Vaughan, the musical tells the story of Madame Celine, ring-mistress of an extraordinary flea circus, and her introduction to the ukulele. Hester Goodman from the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, plays the lead. The director is Niki McCretton from the Stuff & Nonsense Theatre Company and Anna Golding of the No Limits Dance Group is the choreographer.

That comprises a seriously talented and accomplished group, but a people’s opera needs people. Roles are available on stage and off for a wide variety of participants, actors, musicians, singers, set-builders, helpers of every kind.
